The Last Pictures



The weather warmed, a bit, and the sun came out and every bug in the area, it seemed, leaped or flew onto my quilt.


This large wasp being one of the first to arrive.  And I just read The Wasp Scene in The Bees book last night so this really creeped me out!  (Anyone else reading this book?)  It would not leave!


Here's a close-up of the negative space.  I love the way it turns out though sewing it I was not feeling any love whatsoever.  I was afraid the density would make the quilt stiff, but no, it's nice and soft.  My first time using Aurifil, 50 wt., for quilting and I see why it gets such rave reviews.  I also used it for hand sewing the binding and it was great.  No tangles.


I made a section of binding with all the colors, didn't want anyone slighted!



Pretty pleased with myself at this point, the wasp is gone!  Little did I know it hitched a ride into the house on my hair.

Thanks for stopping by~
